Incredible tour!

Leo gave us an amazing tour of The Catacombs Museum in Paris. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the museum and is a captivating storyteller. It is a once in a lifetime experience to be given a catacombs tour by a Cataphile that lives and breathes their passion. Thank you for such a unique and inspiring experience. This is a memory we will cherish.

If you haven’t discover the catacombs’ history, then I advise you to join the Catacombs Tour first. The catacombs where cataphiles like to wander secretly is full of surprises. Why is it so secret? What are they doing down there? Is it true that a cataphile got lost and has never been found since then? Are there any parties underground for real? Thanks to her 13 years experience as a cataphile and her personal documents, you guide will immerse you into this parallel universe.
